Washing machine wont spin

Hi hope someone can machine indesit omega 1200. wont spin it will wash and drain but just wont spin have u got any ideas? My machine stopped spinning or even turning the motor at all. There is no voltage on either of the two red wires coming to the motor but voltage on one of the black wires. I don't think this is how it should be but tracing the wiring in the harness is too difficult. Which controller terminals control the motor?

    Yes, the brushes seem worn.

    For future reference, where is the water level switch pressure chamber?

It is unlikely to be the motor faulty, if it will wash but not spin, check the pump filter first to be on the safe side, if that does not solve the prob, then remove motor and check carbon brushes in motor, as this can often be the cause of the prob.
Also check the water level switch pressure chamber for a possible partial blockage, as this can give the same sympyoms.

Plz rate my solution.

    The water level switch chamber is the one with a long thin hose coming fromi t.It is about 3 to 4mm diameter.

Hi, I have and indesit wil1235 1200 and as you do the process to turn it on, the drum spins and then fills up with water but then just stops an every so often will make the draining sound without draining....

Check your drain line. It is more than likely pushed too far down into the drain line causing the machine to siphon water out as its going in.

My washing machine wont drain, so the rinse and spin cycle cannot activate. Please help. Thanks


Check drain hose at the back, then access drain pump filter and remove eventual blockage. If that does not fix the problem, a common fault is the pressure switck, try blowing in tube and removing soap.

Washing machine wont spin

Your machine may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your machine is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your machine. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your machine in.

Indesit washer dryer 'omega 1200' WDG1295W won't drain!

Sounds like the pump is possibly faulty, or there is a blockage
There should be a removable plastic cover at the bottom front of the m/c, behind this you will see a round plastic cover.
This is the pump filter, unscreit and unblock it if it is full of ****!!!
Hopefully this should solve your problem.
Please leave feedback.
